... but, unfortunately, we just didn't have the time to sample them. It is the type of place you could stay at for a week- but this time it's just one night. Backtracking to last night, it was Sunday and we are in France. This is not altogether good news because hotel restaurants do not open on Sundays or Mondays in general. We had, therefore had the foresight to get the hotel to book a table at a local restaurant which had the temerity to ...
... to go easy given the gradient. Lacets du montvernier was climbed for the first time in the history of the Tour de France this year, and because it is so steep and narrow, no spectators were allowed on that part of the course.

At the foot of Glandon the event was halted for 15mins whilst they choppered away somebody injured for a crash. Chris told me later that he was stopped on Glandon as well for 45mins for another chopper evacuation.

Got to get organised for tomorrow and off to bed ...
